Empire is for sure getting a spin-off and will never ever leave us.

During a Television Critics Association panel on Thursday, Empire creator Lee Daniels confirmed that the show will go on, both in our hearts and on television.


“Without question, there will be a spinoff of Empire,” he says, adding that there’s so much more to the Lyon family drama and “what makes Cookie’s family and what makes Lucious’ family.”

Could it be a spin-off about Cookie launching a fur business?

Daniels also talked about Empire’s ridiculous amount of guest stars. Season two’s include Chris Rock, Marisa Tomei, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and, most recently, Pitbull.


“It’s funny when you start a TV show, you don’t know what you’re doing. You think you can get your friends together,” says Daniels. “The more celebrities and stars we put on the show, the more it takes away from the fact that it’s a family show.”
